Turn The Towns Teal is a national campaign, inspired by Gail McNeil of Chatham N.J., to promote awareness of ovarian cancer and its silent symptoms. Throughout the entire month of September — National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month — those who volunteer with the organization tie ribbons throughout town centers and distribute symptom cards.

As of 2014, the organization reached 45 states. As far as New Jersey, the organization has reached 40 towns, Basking Ridge included.

The goal of the organization is to continue to make more people aware about the symptoms of Ovarian Cancer. Gail McNeil survived a 10-year battle with cancer and realized that not enough was being done to publicize the symptoms so she started this charity. To get involved, you can register at turnthetownsteal.org/get-involved/.
